OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T are absolutely great devices no doubt about that. The phones come with top of the line processor, storage, RAM and an arguably beautiful design. There is no doubt that OxygenOS is one of the most optimized Android OS Skins at the moment. My 2-year-old OnePlus 3 still runs Android 8.0 Oreo, like a dream. But when it comes to the Camera performance of OnePlus devices, there has always been a healthy debate. Some users claim the photos are stunning and some claim that the camera performance could be better. Well, based on my personal experience, I fall into the second category. Don’t get me wrong, I love OnePlus devices. The camera performance has been, and still is, the one area OnePlus could really up their game.

In this guide, we bring you a way to greatly improve the camera quality on your OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5.
